Photos from Agios Ioannis in the 70´s

by Tone » 21 May 2020, 14:50

In the late 70´s my husband and I spent a year in the village of Agios Ioannis in Sfakia. Not many people live in the village today, but we have our memories - and a lot of pictures.
One picture shows the extent of the village in 1978-79, from above, looking west. At that time Agios Ioannis had a total of 55 inhabitants, comprising 13 households.
The other pictures show two of the local inhabitants: Sifi the poet, with log on shoulder, and Georgios, our host, on his donkey.
